When Clive Grainger’s image of today’s solar eclipse at Fawn Lake arrived it was clear that it needed to be posted today – even though it’s The Citizen’s ‘Gone Fishing’ week.

And then other images arrived – of Bedford residents watching the eclipse at home or away, either staring at the sun or capturing its shadow through multiple pin-holes or in the shadows on leaves.

Bedfordites traveled to Bull Island, a Barrier Island off the South Carolina Coast, and were among the last to see the eclipse as it passed beyond the continental US – Image (c) Marc Hamilton, 2017 all rights reserved – Click to view larger image

 

Also, thanks to Brian Hart: How does the Man in the Moon cut his hair? He (groan!) ECLIPSES it!
